Gannett Fleming and WSP picked for NC light rail

A joint venture of Gannett Fleming and WSP is to serve as construction management consultant for the Durham-Orange light rail project in North Carolina.

The Gannett Fleming/WSP Joint Venture was selected by GoTriangle for the 17.7-mile system, which will have 18 stations between UNC Hospitals in Chapel Hill and North Carolina Central University in Durham.

The design team for the US$2.48bn project had been picked in August 2017 (link opens in new tab).

The line includes over 10 miles of at-grade ballasted track, approximately 4 miles on an elevated structure, and approximately 3.5 miles of at-grade embedded track. A trip from end to end is expected to take 45 minutes.

“We are proud to be part of a team that’s implementing much-needed rail transit in the Triangle Region because it will transform mobility in the community,” said Bryan Mulqueen, a Gannett Fleming executive vice president and Durham-Orange Light Rail contract project manager. “Future generations will look back and ask ‘How did we ever live without this?’”.

The Gannett Fleming/WSP joint venture will provide a wide range of services, including constructability reviews, estimating, contract packaging, design, and specification reviews during phase one, and full construction management services during phase two.
